  2007 Mystery Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

Being headquartered here in the middle of the action pays off, on almost a daily basis. But it isn't every day that we come across an $85 bottle of Cabernet that is a) drinking in peak form, b) from old vines in Calistoga, c) from a highly experienced winemaker, d) nearly 10 years old, and e) from a great vintage. Oh, and did we mention we can offer it to you for $40? We smell a Mystery Wine.

Facts

• This Cabernet vineyard in Calistoga, which once supplied Château Montelena, was planted in 1971, making it 36 years old in 2007, resulting in superb concentration.

• The vineyard is managed by Jim Barbour of Barbour Vineyard Management, who also handles Cakebread, Blankiet, Grace Family, and many others.

• The winemaker was a protégé of "The Maestro," André Tchelistcheff, and 2007 was her 34th vintage making fine wine.

• This wine, as well as the current release, sells for $84.95 at the winery.

Tasting Note

This wine is perfectly ripe, rich, and mature, with notes of blackcurrants and blueberries, not to mention sarsaparilla, cedar, leather, and a hint of caramel in the finish. In a restaurant, we would be perfectly delighted to pay $125 for a wine of this age and quality. Seize the day and treat yourself to a case of this great Cabernet to drink over the next year or two.
